Fundraising for The Walk for Hunger is one of the most powerful ways you can support the fight to end hunger in Massachusetts and help hungry children and families thrive. Every participant will receive a personal fundraising page when they register. There is no fundraising minimum, but we encourage each participant to strive to raise $250.
The Walk for Hunger's goal is to raise $2 million to support anti-hunger work in Massachusetts, like expanding access to free summer meals for kids, school breakfast, affordable groceries, and advocating for policy solutions that wikll have wide-reaching impact to reduce food-insecurity and poverty. Let's go big to help hungry kids and families this year!
Check-in tents on Boston Common open at 6:00am - 9:30am. Registered walkers can check-in and pick up their t-shirts and "walking papers". Any cash or check donations that you have with you can be given to the volunteers at these tents.
All walkers must register to participate. Day-of registration tents will open on Boston Common at 6am-10am. All participants are strongly encouraged to register in advance online (t-shirt sizes not guaranteed for day-of registrants)
The official start of both walk routes is at 8:30am. The starting line will be open from 8:30am-9:30am. Any walkers who arrive after 9:30 will be asked to head to checkpoint one or two to start. This is to ensure that you are able to complete the course before the end of the event at 6pm to ensure a safe experience.
The Walk for Hunger is a rain or shine event. Be prepared to have fun:
